TREES IN DISTRESS - GUEST SPEAKER

You may have noticed quite a few of our trees are in distress. These trees are at our main entrance, continue along Plantation Trace and can be found in several other areas of our neighborhood. To gain an understanding of the possible underlying causes of the distress and the ways in which it can be treated, we have invited Dan Bauer of Arbor Equity to speak at our HOA meeting Tuesday, April 5th, at 6:30 PM. This is the first item on the agenda.

.

You are encouraged to attend this meeting as we seek our options and possible solutions to an issue that effects every homeowner.

STREET LIGHT OUT?

If a street light is out on your street, you need to report it to the City of Covington and speak to someone in Customer Service. All street lights in our neighborhood are owned and operated by the City.

.

Please call 770-385-2000 and select Option "0" to speak to someone.

GREEN VEHICLE STICKERS

With the Pool Parking Lot in regular use, it is important that every vehicle owned by a resident have a Green Vehicle Sticker placed on the rear window. These stickers are provided free of charge by the HOA and are a Safety Measure to assist residents and the Covington Police recognize those vehicles that belong in our neighborhood.

If you do not have a Green Vehicle Sticker on each of your vehicles, please REPLY to this email providing your Name, Street Address, and the Number of Vehicles you have and they will be delivered to your mailbox. Or email to tp81854@yahoo.com.

If you would like a sticker for your golf cart too, please make that request as this is a great idea since many residents drive their golf carts to the pool.

OVERNIGHT VISITORS & CAMPERS/RVs PARKED IN THE STREET or AT POOL PARKING LOT - VISITOR PARKING PASS REQUIRED - NO EXCEPTIONS

If you will be having overnight quests park on the street or your Camper/RV parked in front of your home (or at the Pool Parking Lot) at any time during the year in preparation for a trip or returning from a trip, you MUST place a VISITOR PARKING PASS on the dashboard so that the Covington Police know that it belongs to you and will be moving shortly. Please indicate on the Visitor Pass the date you will be moving the RV. This is to be followed every time.

Leaving unmarked cars parked in the Pool Parking Lot during the day or overnight is not allowed. If vehicles do not have a Green Vehicle Sticker on them then they MUST have a Visitor Parking Pass on them to keep from being towed.

.

If you need a Visitor Parking Pass Template, please email tp81854@yahoo.com and one will be emailed back to you.

GOT ANY NEWS TO SHARE?

If you have school, military, community, etc. news to share with the neighborhood, please send it to tp81854@yahoo.com by Friday each week to be included in the Newsletter.

HAS ANYONE NEW MOVED IN NEXT DOOR TO YOU?

If you have new neighbors don't forget to let Brooke Woodall know so that the Covington Place Welcome Wagon can visit them with a nice welcoming basket and community information. Brooke's email is brookedwoodall@gmail.com. You can just provide the Street address and Brooke will do the rest - it's that easy!

Also, please ask them to send an email to tp81854@yahoo.com to be added to the Newsletter and receive green vehicle stickers.
